Don’t let the warm weather stop you from being productive

Staff Editorial

As it gets warmer outside and the days get longer, it might seem like we have all the time in the world. It is easy to glance out the window in class one moment and become completely distracted with the sun and people outside, so we completely forget to pay attention.

Even though it would be easier and more fun to go outside and forget about all your responsibilities, we are still in the middle of the semester, and there is still work to do.

That doesn’t mean we have to be shut inside studying, however. If it’s nice, bring your homework outside. Study with friends on the bench by Booth Library, or on the Doudna Steps for a nice change of pace.

That way, you can get your stuff done while enjoying the clear skies and warm weather while it lasts, because we all know how unpredictable it is in Illinois.

This means, of course, the fact that it is nice outside is no excuse for not doing your work or even procrastinating. There are still ways to get what you need to done, especially as midterms are coming up and there is still so much to do.

Do what you can to keep up with everything, and as always, don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need to. Summer will be here before we know it.
